Lichfield Festival and Lichfield Cathedral present
Tony Hadley Live - sponsored by City Jewellers of Lichfield
Tuesday 3 December 2019 | Lichfield Cathedral
Tony Hadley is to give a very special, one-off performance to help raise much-needed funds to support the charity Lichfield Festival – the region’s premier multi-arts festival – of which he is a Patron.
Lichfield Festival and Lichfield Cathedral Present Tony Hadley Live, sponsored by City Jewellers of Lichfield, takes place on Tuesday 3 December and is a unique opportunity to see the singer in the glorious surroundings of the medieval cathedral.
Backed by a fabulous band, the gig will see Tony perform a selection of his classic hits, as well as songs from his latest album and a sprinkling of festive favourites.
The former Spandau Ballet frontman and I’m A Celebrity … star, who has family connections to the city, became a Patron of Lichfield Festival in 2017, helping to emphasise the Festival’s broad appeal and wide-ranging programming.
In addition, he has generously agreed to donate his fee to St Giles’ Hospice which cares for local people and families living with potentially terminal illness.
Tony Hadley said, ”It is such a privilege to be able to perform in the magnificent Lichfield Cathedral. It’s going to be a wonderful evening that will also raise money for two very important causes. The band and I are really looking forward to it.”
Chair of Lichfield Festival, Helen Wiser, said, “It’s been a delight to have Tony on board as a Patron and we are thrilled that he has agreed to support the Festival and St Giles’ Hospice in such a generous way. The concert will be a brilliant and very special start to the festive season.”
Tony Hadley will be returning to the region in 2020/21 as part of a 40-date UK tour to celebrate his 40 years in the music business.
